Why does the blinking blue light sometimes flash alone and other times the red light blinks?

It has done this with 2 class 10 cards from Kingston and pny.

Does it affect the files?

Have you tried to reinstall the firmware?

Do you have motion detection on?

I tried the original and Romanian firmware.

It happens with both versions.

Recording seems to happen uninterrupted.

I was using the romanian version firmware without the viofo startup screen.
I got the same results from the original firmware with the viofo startup screen.

I had the G sensor set on low.

HDR was on.

Motion detection off.

The red light blinking happened even when my car was sitting still.

I included video of the blinking light suddenly changing color in the link below. Boring, but shows the issue.

The camera also has a ton of static and the audio is barely audible. An example is here.

Done just a few minutes apart.
Low volume lots of static Romanian firmware

Low volume lots of static viofo original firmware

@viofo Do you have any ideas? Why is the audio full of static and the red light flashing intermittently?
